One of the most important aspects of any migration of data to the cloud is cost optimization. Luckily, AWS has made this relatively simple thanks to the Database Migration Service. In this hands-on lab, we are going to use the Database Migrations Service (DMS) to migrate a MySQL database from an EC2 server to an RDS Aurora MySQL database.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
